2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
26.09.2010, 0,33l Bottle. Golden colour with white head. Lively carbonated. Aroma is totaly dominated by hops and bitternes. Rather thin body and there is not to much malt. Hops and bitterness gives a lot of taste and flavours and gives the beer its freshnes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color, small white head. Fruity (peach, apricot, resin) hoppy nose (American hops) with some metal. Light to medium bodied. A bit watery front. Nice resiny, grapefruity hoppyness. Simple but refreshing. Some similarities to Slottskällans brews, is their yeast used here?

Bottle from Systembolaget. Flowery is just the start of it! I had it to sushi, which probably didn’t do it justice. Very flowery taste. I prefer the Sommarlager.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2010 Hoppy aroma, floral and resiny. Carries on to the flavour, too. Clean malts, but not too light, with delightful bitterness following. I wish I had given this a chance sooner and hope it will be back next summer. Mass produced pilsners all too often aren’t anything like pilsners but this feel like a nice take on the style.

Bottle. Nice head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich with hops, but also some flowers, fruits and citrus. Nice bitter finish. Wonderful beer for a hophead like me.

Clear straw yellow color, smallish but lasting white head. Malty and acidic scent. Malty, dryish bitter, herbal hoppy taste. A bit yeasty. Medium mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness. Some metallic notes in the aftertaste. Also a bit grainy.
Draught at Bishops Arms Järntorget, Göteborg. On October 5, 2011
Clear straw yellwo color, medium white head. Fresh hoppy and malty sweet scent and taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Feels like a new beer compared to the bottle, very nice. One I can drink more of, at least from draught.
